It seems that one or two of you appreciate the Adult Variation section. I was seriously thinking of discontinuing that section. But at least for Suelily I won't!!
Morning Snack: I have been cooking like a world champion lately and have a few leftovers of this and that. So as we are leaving for the US on Saturday I do not want to go out and shop on a large scale. On the weekend I made Chiles Rellenos and had a few tortillas left over. Today I decided to use one and make a nice wrap for Soeren with stuff I had in the fridge. I spread some cream cheese on the tortilla and put a few slices of grilled turkey breast, a slice of cheese and a few rucola leaves. A squirt of ketchup keeps the whole thing together. I had a little nibble and it really did taste fantastic. In the fruit department are wedges of the last of the juicy organic oranges. A few dried cranberries and some cashew nuts as treats.
Afternoon Snack: A chocolate bun put a smile on his face and organic grapes with vanilla custard a huge grin. He added his Actimel (fruit yoghurt drink) and said it would taste good with the bun. Isn't it just great when kids become so independent?
Adult Variation: The wraps are a great lunch box filler. You can fill them any way you like and of course with some spicy salsa. Try this for a filler: Chop up some grilled chicken or turkey breast into a bowl. Mix with cream cheese and sprinkle a little hint of curry powder. Chop up a few pineapple chunks and fill the wrap. Add some crunchy lettuce leaves and you have a asian style wrap filling! As for the custard I have something neat for you try. Put a few sponge finger biscuits in a container, pour a tiny bit of orange juice to soak the biscuits a bit and add some fruit over the top. You can just use grapes if you like. Now pour the custard over this and cool for a few hours - overnight is the best. Neat dessert to take with you eh? Make sure you keep this away from your colleagues!
